“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant".
Ann Bradstreet from The Works of Ann Bradstreet
As I write this newsletter, it is beginning to snow with a forecast of 5-8 inches. Thus, the store is closed. At Wright's Hallmark, we have been working to bring a little spring into the store with our bunnies, chicks, pastel eggs birds, and garden items. So far, it has been a busy March with customers shopping for new merchandise to brighten their living space and find ways to rid themselves of the cold winter doldrums. Easter trees are disappearing off the shelves with spring ornaments rather quickly. We have a collection of white ceramic rabbits in various poses and sizes which can be used for a long time in your decorating plans. Or perhaps you would like to add a few bunnies to your dining table. Our bunny salt and pepper set and our whimsical ducky friends set from Grassland Roads may be just the little touch you need to bring a smile to your spring tablescape. We have all kinds of Easter ornaments. One popular set looks like foiled-wrapped Easter chocolates that can be hung from your own tree or spring branch. We have many beautiful eggs to fill all kinds of baskets and nests.
For several seasons, we have carried melting characters from Two's Company. This year we have the Melting Bunny to follow up from the Melting Snowman and The Melting Witch. Make him up and watch him melt. You can remake him as many times as he melts. It is a great way to occupy small hands! He can be stored in his own container and brought out for seasons to come.
We can't leave out our bird friends. We have bird tree and bird plate jewelry holders to add a small touch of spring to your vanity or dressing table. Soon, a shipment of bird houses should arrive to add more semblance of springtime to your vignettes. Butterflies and dragonflies make their way into the season in the forms of printed tissues, picture frames, and coasters,.
Also new to the store are springtime flags from Carson Home Accents. Each sells for $11.99. Here are some samples of what we have to offer.
Dancing flowers from Two's Company are back. They are solar powered and move their leaves and petals as more sunshine hit the small panel on the front of the pot. All of us are looking for more sunshine these days. Administrative Assistant's Day will be here soon so keep this in mind for an addition to your assistant's desk.
We can't forget our to outfit our ladies and their friends. A new shipment of Jody Coyote earrings is sure to please the most discriminating customer. Lightweight scarves and infinities by Demdaco, Two's Company, Ganz, and Noelle have taken the place of heavy wools and faux furs.
By, the way, there is always a sale. Right now we have selected stationery, albums, and recipe books that would make great projects for Christmas gifts. So make a plan to stop by Wright's Hallmark very soon to put a little spring into your life. We will be happy to show you what is new!
